CRUISR Premiere New Animated Video for "All Over"

CRUISR have just debuted their new video for "All Over"! Check out the premiere via Buzzfeed or watch below. Through animated clips, the video brings the song's theme of love/hate relationships to life by remaking legendary scenes from iconic films of both past and present. Directed by Chris Carboni (Adult Swim) the video walks the line between lovers and enemies.

"A lot of the fun came in finding the right balance of love and chaos to represent sucha volatile relationship," Carboni tells Buzzfeed. "I knew I wanted to echo the idea of constantly cycling back and forth between these two extremes by having continuous transitions (no cuts) which resulted in a lot of work on both the design and animation end. Every shot had to be constructed to blend into the next."

"All Over" is the title track from CRUISR's new EP, available now on iTunes and Spotify. The guys are currently on tour directly supporting The 1975 across the country. Click HERE for all upcoming dates.

CRUISR Signs with Vagrant, Pre-Order New EP All Over

We are excited to welcome Philadelphia's CRUISR to the Vagrant roster! Today, you can pre-order their upcoming EP, All Over, on iTunes and receive an instant download of the title track. Stream the new song below ahead of the EP's September 23 release.

All Over is comprised of three songs and was produced and mixed by Andrew Maury (RAC, Panama Wedding, Ra Ra Riot). The EP's title track cleverly allegorizes a love-hate relationship in the vessel of a sinewy pop song layered with contagious hooks and melodies.

CRUISR began in 2012 as the solo project of Andy States and quickly morphed into what it is today; an indie-pop band whose summery, feel-good hooks are infectious and stadium ready. States wrote and recorded the band’s first EP in his Philadelphia bedroom, fixated on the idea of what it means to craft a pop song. “I have an obsession with writing pop music and the idea that songs can transcend people.,” States says. “I saw that producer Jeremy Park started writing blog articles about how he recorded Youth Lagoon, so I wrote to him and sent him my songs asking for advice and knowledge. He wrote back and loved my stuff and helped me produce the first EP.” The six-song self-titled EP was released in the summer of 2012 and quickly garnered attention online and in the press.

Fast-forward to present day when CRUISR is gearing up to release their second EP, All Over, which demonstrates how fantastically Andy’s mind is able to translate pop hooks. “How does pop music make everyone like it so much?” States laughs, “Little kids hear it on the radio and just go crazy, singing stupid songs. There’s something that’s so smart about it, and a lot of things that people don't notice are the key ingredients to writing a pop song. I'm just really into trying to decipher what those things are and trying to make pop music in our own way.” 

Formerly known as Cruiser, the band will go forward as CRUISR (out of respect for a fellow artist with the same name). CRUISR is Andy States (vocals / guitar), Jonathan Van Dine (drums), Kyle Cook (bass), Bruno Catrambone (guitar).
